Getting Dental Implants
The first step is a consultation and comprehensive examination with Dr. Cobb. Using the latest technology, including digital radiography and 3D bone scans, Dr. Cobb is able to get a precise look at what is going on inside your mouth and bone structure. Next, Dr. Cobb works up a specific treatment plan that involves an oral surgeon or other specialists. Using digital imaging, computer modeling, and wax models, Dr. Cobb is able to illustrate for the patient how the proposed treatment will look and function. Then, we will send plans to the dental laboratory who will fabricate the surgical guides and final restoration.
After receiving the final restoration, it is ready for permanent placement. However, before we can permanently attach the implant, we need to make sure your mouth is ready. The patient will then see an oral surgeon or periodontist to remove the damaged tooth or teeth, bone grafting, and prepare the jaw bone. Finally, our doctor will place the dental implant at our office.
The dental implant post is titanium and will naturally fuse with the living bone over three to four months. In some cases, the patient may be eligible to remove an immediate provisional (temporary) tooth. Certain patients may receive their permanent restoration that same day. Dr. Cobb will place the final restoration, either a dental crown or a prosthetic tooth (or teeth), in the comfort of his office. Schedule a consultation online when you are ready for dental implants.
Dental implants are particularly strong and natural-looking. They are an excellent choice for replacing teeth missing in the smile zone.
